Maria-Carolina Rodríguez-Daza, Laurence Daoust, Lemia Boutkrabt, Geneviève Pilon, Thibault Varin, Stéphanie Dudonné, Émile Levy, André Marette, Denis Roy, Yves Desjardins,

Blueberries are a rich source of polyphenols, widely studied for the prevention or attenuation of metabolic diseases. However, the health contribution and mechanisms of action of polyphenols depend on their type and structure. Here, we evaluated the effects of a wild blueberry polyphenolic extract (WBE) (Vaccinium angustifolium Aiton) on cardiometabolic ... Read more >>

Altruistic food sharing behavior by human infants after a hunger manipulation.

Rodolfo Cortes Barragan, Rechele Brooks, Andrew N Meltzoff,

Altruistic behavior entails giving valuable benefits to others while incurring a personal cost. A distinctively human form of altruistic behavior involves handing nutritious food to needy strangers, even when one desires the food. Engaging in altruistic food transfer, instead of keeping the food, is costly, because it reduces the caloric ... Read more >>
